Borderlands Theater produced a play using the voices of youth throughout Tucson and a number of our Pueblo Students participated in workshops to contribute to this theater piece.
Pueblo was the first to preview the play and about 6 classes attended. After the conclusion of the play, the actors conducted a Q & A with the students. The actors stressed to everyone with an interest in theater to get involved with some Tucson Theater Groups.
This collaboration was made possible by Borderlands Education Outreach Program which serves both youth and the general audience with special matinee performances, audience talkbacks, study guides and other activities.
Four students at Pueblo are taking part in a Culinary Arts Program through JTED. These students travel to Santa Rita every Tuesday & Thursday each week to attend culinary classes.
As part of a counselor outreach program, they recently served breakfast on 3 occasions for about 60 guests. They would prepare a menu for each session and purchase ingredients accordingly. Cooking would begin before sunrise at 6:00 a.m. in order to have food ready for our guests.
On this occasion the menu included: chilaquiles topped with queso fresco, scrambled eggs with nopalitos, frijoles, tortillas and a chilled glass of orange juice or coffee.
We look forward to more events hosted by these students as they move forward towards their career as Chefs.
